Nathan Dendy  

Financial Advisor, SageSpring | Financial Professional, RJFS

A Tuscaloosa native, Nathan graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Finance in 2007. After graduating, Nathan worked in property management for three years while also working as the worship director for a local church, New Beginning Family Worship Center. In 2011, Nathan transitioned into full time real estate sales. He established himself as one of Tuscaloosa’s top young Realtors when he was awarded the Tuscaloosa Association of the Realtors “Rookie of the Year” in 2011. In his first-year full time in the business, Nathan sold 33 units, and nearly 3.5 million dollars in real estate closed volume.

In October 2015, Nathan partnered with a group of influential local Tuscaloosa Realtors to launch a Keller Williams Realty franchise in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Nathan stepped away from his real estate sales business and took on the role of Team Leader/CEO for the new Keller Williams franchise. Responsible for the company’s growth, productivity, and profitability, Nathan helped grow the company from 40 to 100 real estate agents in less than three years. Keller Williams Tuscaloosa quickly became number one real estate company in the Tuscaloosa area in closed transactions, closed volume, and agent count, gaining 33% of market in 2021. 

During his time at Keller Williams, Nathan enjoyed coaching and consulting real estate agents in areas of their businesses, finances, and wealth building. As CEO, Nathan’s passion for investing in the growth of others helped drive the company to enormous success. In 2020, Keller Williams Tuscaloosa was ranked by Real Trends as the #470 real estate office in the nation in closed units out of over 100,000 real estate offices nationwide. Keller Williams Tuscaloosa was also ranked by Swanepoel Mega 1000 as the #6 real estate brokerage office in the State of Alabama in closed units in 2019.

With his finance background, one of Nathan’s passions has always been to help support and educate people in the areas of personal finances and wealth management. In 2022, Nathan joined forces with the Will Scroggins Wealth Team and SageSpring Wealth Partners as a financial advisor. Nathan is excited to continue to use his business, consulting, and leadership experience to help his clients thrive in the area of their personal finances.

In 2014, Nathan received one of the greatest gifts of his life when he married Susan Dendy. Nathan enjoys spending time with his wife, Susan, and his three daughters, Livi Joy, Alley, and Louise. His hobbies include reading, golf, running, water skiing, snowboarding, and playing the piano. Nathan has completed two marathons and has a passion for travel and adventure. Nathan and his family are active members of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Jeff Dobyns has enjoyed extraordinary success providing comprehensive financial planning to retirees, entrepreneurs, entertainers, and executives by taking the time to truly know his clients, understand their goals and develop and execute their ongoing, strategic, financial plans.

Jeff earned his finance degree in business administration from Ohio University and has held executive positions with financial planning firms for more than two decades. After serving as Vice President of Investments of Lykins Financial Group, CPA’s, in his hometown of Westerville, Ohio, Jeff moved to Nashville, Tennessee to found SageSpring Wealth Partners in 2002. As its President, Jeff has led SageSpring to remarkable success, holding the distinction of being one of Raymond James’ top independent contractor offices, and a member of its Chairman’s Council*, every year since 2008.

Jeff’s true calling, however, is working directly with clients, helping them plan their financial futures in a manner that aligns with their values and helps provide them with financial confidence. To help meet these goals, Jeff leads the team of Dobyns Wealth Team and also incorporates the expertise of attorneys, accountants and other professionals to provide quality financial, tax and estate planning, and ongoing asset and risk management.

As independent advisory businesses, neither SageSpring Wealth Partners nor Dobyns Wealth Team hold any assets on behalf of clients, with such custodial and brokerage services being provided by Raymond James. As a leader in wealth management, Raymond James has an exemplary reputation and today serves more than $930 billion in client assets through 8,200 financial advisors worldwide (as of 9/30/2020).

In order to meet the highest standards of professionalism and ethics in the industry, Jeff is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM practitioner**, a Chartered Life Underwriter and a Chartered Financial Consultant. Jeff is also a participant of the Dave Ramsey SmartVestor program.

Jeff’s work and personal life are both guided by his faith and the Christian principles of honesty, generosity, compassion, and integrity. Accordingly, Jeff devotes considerable time and resources to a number of causes, including serving as a board member of Men of Valor, a prison ministry and mentoring program. He is also on the advisory board of The Signatry of Middle Tennessee, which works with families to increase their charitable giving to their favorite causes. Additionally, Jeff is on the advisory board for Halftime Institute, an organization that coaches marketplace leaders to discern and engage in their life purpose. Lastly, Jeff serves on the board of the Legacy Center of Nashville, a collaboration of independent coaching resources. He is a past board member of Porter’s Call, a Nashville charity that provides free counseling for musicians and their families, and the Martha O’Bryan Center, which empowers those in poverty to transform their lives through work, education, employment, and fellowship.
